Description

Sunrise is at 7:28 am for this year's winter solstice!  Take a break from seasonal frenzy and enjoy a leisurely hike along the sections of the Bruce, Red Oak and Hilton Falls Trails at Hilton Falls Conservation Area.  Meet at the parking lot at 8:45 am for sign in.  Fee if you don't have a Conservation Halton annual pass.  Fees listed here https://www.conservationhalton.ca/park-details?park=hilton-falls  Bring snacks and water, icers an poles.   Please note that this is a slower hike for those who want to experience winter at a slower pace in this beautiful conservation area and view the falls.   Registration not required but helps.  Contact Bron at brontreg@cogeco.ca for more information or 905-637-7136.  If you are coming up from Burlington I can car pool with you. For the day of the hike you can text me at 905-334-4013 if you get lost.   Cancelled in high winds or very heavy precipitation.

I recommend you treat yourself to an annual pass to Conservation Halton sometime before you come. You can purchase at Crawford Lake CA.  You will get a discount with your Bruce Trail Conservancy membership.
